[OOC] Gone Hawking

First off: Yeah, definitely no animal that would be native to parts around Freedom.

The scratches are, almost certainly, claws, judging by how they run down the torsos and the space between them. Quite large claws, if the amount of dried blood and other stuff next to them is any indication they go fairly deep. Claws, Talons, or something similar. But certainly more than one per attack, not really something that was easily faked.

The shoulder was, if the parts surrounding it are any indication, just ripped off with a lot of force. Quite a lot, considering it would have to break through at least a few bones. But it wasn't carefully removed or anything. Just brute forced, with almost complete certainty. Whatever did this probably grabbed (or bit?) onto one part, and was strong enough to rip the rest away.


As for the area surrounding the corpses, there's not much to tell. The photos aren't that great, and focus on the corpses, so it's hard to tell anything about them by the background. Except for the fact it's, almost certainly, in Wharton.

DC 26 Survival, DC 27 Notice






Well not _bad_, just not as skyrocketingly high as the rest.

Okay, so:



There’s some tracks in the area. Most of them don’t seem to belong to the corpse. However, what’s noticeable is that all of them keep a fair bit of distance from it, about 3 ft. Even the ones clearly belonging to predators, that would get an easy meal from a corpse like this just lying around.

There’s also tracks belonging to the dead animal, coming from the north. They’re pretty old and faded at this point, just barely noticeable. As well as a really strange looking, barely visible set of tracks, that doesn’t really look like anything Riley’s seen before. A single, sort of jaggedy rectangle, with distances of perhaps 2 ft between the prints.

There’s also one set of human (shoe) footprints, probably some sort of park ranger

Upon looking around a bit, Riley notices that there’s no birds close-by (Jann excluded). None on any of the trees that are directly within line of sight. A closer inspection of the corpse reveals that there’s something on all the wounds, which, when inspected closer, looks fairly similar to charred flesh. It might even be!

There’s not actually much else in the area when it comes to searching through the grass. Some broken twigs that help with the tracks, a bush of berries (ripe, but untouched), but nothing that really stands out as not fitting in.

Checking before I do it - is there anything going to stop Riley from shooting that rabbit right in the vitals?

Okay, I'd say it's time for initiative


Just to clarify, I'm already using Jann's PL10 sheet, which isn't on his main sheet yet, but the edits were approved.



Jann: Initiative: 1d20+8 17


Bunny: Initiative: 1d20 4

Jann isn't gonna do anything fancy, will simply do a ranged attack:


Javelins!: 1d20+13 29

Yeah, that definitely hits. So, DC22 for the bunny:


Toughness Save: 1d20+8 16

Ouch! So that's a Daze + Bruise already! Gonna give Jann 1 HP to downgrade that to just a Bruise

And Riley's up!

The Bunny won't do anything, Jann's gonna go for another ranged attack as I just realized I never got him Move-By Attack.


Trading 4 Attack for Damage


Attack: 1d20+9 29

And it's a Crit. Let's make it +5 Damage, for a total of 16 Damage, so, DC 31.

Toughness Save: 1d20+6 24


Aw. Just another Daze + Bruise. 3 Bruises now.
